Mejid Hamzy Suspected Killer
Deputy Inspector Darren Sly said the two men were spotted running from the shooting scene into an indescribable vehicle.
Deputy Inspector Sly said, “Based on what we know, the two men I described seem to be waiting for the man to leave his house this morning, so we can definitely say that this is a target shot at this early stage.”
“Shortly after the clash, we received reports of a burnt-down vehicle in Yagoona.” Deputy Inspector Sly said it is not yet known whether the car was linked to the shooting.
“The police are always worried that when we open a public fire, they might have repercussions,” he said. “After the hit, the man managed to move or run for a hundred yards before he collapsed.”
A woman who did not give her name said that Mejid Hamzy’s son was his brother-in-law and a “good man”.
“He’s a nice family man,” he said. “I can’t believe … we were having a barbecue together yesterday.”
She said the attack would “greatly” shake society.
